Are you making excuses for someone you’re in a relationship with because you’re hellbent on making it work? Perhaps that’s because you’re afraid of being alone, you want to be taken care of, or you have low self-esteem and don’t believe you deserve any better — but you do. While a love psychic can help you identify love, here are some key insights to help you determine whether or not the relationship you’re in is worth fighting for.
They fit into your lifestyle
If you feel as though you have had to reinvent yourself with this person, that’s a serious red flag. A sign of a healthy relationship is when they fit into your lifestyle — and vice versa! Do they support your hobbies and goals? Do you have mutual interests to help keep the relationship afloat? Do they get along with your friends and family? If you answered yes to these questions, your relationship is off to the right start.
You can communicate with one another
Communication is the key to any successful relationship — even non-romantic ones. It’s important that you’re both on the same page if you want to avoid resentment and hurt feelings. Discuss important topics such as whether or not you truly want a commitment and if so, does that mean settling down with a family or checking off items on your travel bucket list. Don’t forget the small details, too. Perhaps it drives you crazy when your partner leaves his or her things around the house. Calmly talk about how you feel right away before the problem festers into a big blowout — just be prepared to hear things about your habits, too. With that in mind, a relationship psychic reading can be helpful even if you’re in a completely healthy relationship.
You don’t keep secrets from one another
Good communication also means you’re not keeping secrets from one another. This means everything from exes, STDs, and cheating to debt, felonies, and doubts about your sexual orientation. When you’re not keeping secrets, you’re less apt to be nosy, too. It’s completely unethical to go through your S.O.’s social media accounts, text messages, emails, etc., and it’s a strong indicator that there’s a lack of trust between the two of you.
Respect each other’s boundaries
Setting boundaries is like creating a rule book for your relationship. They are important because they indicate that you — and your partner — aren’t pushovers and that you have your limits. If you’ve never thought about what your boundaries are, this is the time to sit down and write a list of what you consider dealbreakers. If you let things go that make you unhappy, it will only result in resentment (there goes that point about communication again!). Once you establish your boundaries stick to them; settling, because you’re afraid of being alone, is only going to backfire. If you’re struggling to come up with your list, a love psychic advisor can provide you with some valuable insight.
You can completely be yourself
Lying or concealing flaws on the first date or through the honeymoon phase is only going to backfire as the truth will eventually reveal itself. When someone truly loves you, they love you for who you are inside and out. Self-doubt will only make this person doubt you, too, so keep that chin up, let your hair down, and let your true colors shine.
You support one another through good times and in bad
Not to steal a line from traditional wedding vows, but being able to be there for each other through the best of times and the worst of times is key. Not every moment together is going to be pure bliss, so successful couples put the needs and wants of their partner up there with there own — sometimes, even above their own — and vice versa. Relationships are all about compromising and collaboration. If you’re hitting a roadblock, consider booking a love psychic reading together to help you overcome these hurdles.
You still have the desire to make that person feel special
Whether it’s a come hither glance from across the room, planning an impromptu date night, or taking care of all the weekend errands when your partner isn’t feeling well, it’s important to regularly make one another feel special — not just on a Hallmark holiday.
Even something as simple as carving out time for one another speaks volumes.
